Medical drug drop at fire department on Saturday
For the third year in a row, a medical drug drop will be at the Newton Fire Department from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday. The drop will allow individuals to bring unused or expired prescription and over-the-counter medications along with pet medications, vitamins, supplements, lotions, creams and controlled substances for disposal. There will be a large secure container and the items can be dropped off with no questions asked. Law enforcement will provide security at the drop.
The drug drop has become so popular that it is now offered twice a year. In November 2011 and April 2012, the drops collected 135 pounds of medications.
A large part of the drop centers on education. Addictions to prescription medications are on the rise throughout the country, and Iowa is no exception.
